UpTown Broadway | Boulder, CO

Distinctive Architecture, Housing Variety Redefines Urban Living


This red mortar-and-steel development, set in a developing area leading to downtown Boulder, focuses on compact live, work, and play space. The site is divided into small urban blocks including a pedestrian ‘spine’ serving as a public plaza and organizational element. Parking is hidden from public view behind buildings and underground. The project includes 35,000 sq. ft. of retail, 53,000 sq. ft. of parking garage, public plazas, public lanes and residential courtyards and 223 residential units in 9 prototypes varying from live-work to carriage units, lofts and 3-bedroom town homes.


Uptown Broadway is envisioned as an integrated mixed-use urban village incorporating a mixture of price ranges, housing types, and street front retail for a variety of people in a pedestrian-focused setting.
